Chimney sweeps bringing luck to Piedmont

Turin, August 26 - If folklore is true, good luck may be rubbing off around northern Italy's Piedmont region when chimney sweeps from around the world gather there later this week. The 32nd annual International Gathering of Chimney Sweeps beings Friday near Lake Maggiore, with more than 800 chimney sweeps expected from across Europe, as well as the United States and Japan. Issues are likely to include safety and certification among sweeps, who have been glorified in popular culture through such books and films as Mary Poppins, which included a happy-go-lucky sweep who promised that good luck would rub off anyone who shakes hands with a sweep.
